There is a natural progression of pupils from both Herzlia Primary Schools into the High School, where we offer a rich variety of opportunities, beyond the walls of the classroom, such as:
- Spiritual: the Judaica Society organizes talks and activities; we celebrate and commemorate all Jewish holy days; the JLL department is dedicated to organizing informal Jewish education.
- An award-winning and innovative vocational programme, for pupils who choose an alternative education stream, other than the conventional matric.
- The school’s mentoring system ensures that each pupil is part of a small group and is coached and nurtured holistically during their time at the High School.
- An interesting variety of sporting codes: cricket, netball, chess, soccer, basketball, golf, tennis, swimming, water polo, hockey, table tennis, surfing and mountain biking.
- Cultural activities (debating, school plays, music ensemble, vocal ensemble).
- A wide variety of outreach programmes (Interact, United Africa Society, Tutor Outreach Programme, Feedback, a branch of the Treatment Action Campaign, and The Environmental Association).
- Several clubs and societies: Film Club; Science Club; Zionist society; Music Club; Pupils’ Animal Welfare Society, Photography Club.
- Extension activities: Presidents Cup
The Inclusive Leadership Programme aims to deliver and develop the skills to be a leader to the pupils in each of the grades. With tremendous success, the result is a programme in which more than 100 pupils are occupying various leadership positions within the school, including grade representatives, captains of sports teams and class monitors.
In addition, all pupils are exposed to this field of training and exciting development has included many participants in the President’s Leadership Award.
We have a very active and vibrant Inter-house system, which is inclusive of all the students and teachers. These activities include:
- athletic competitions
- sporting activities
At Herzlia High School it’s important for us to provide an inspiring environment where there is a balance between freedom to innovate and learning in a framework of mutual respect which stems from discipline. We find that this is an easy task to execute if we, as role models, live out the values of cooperation and accountability.
